Revealed during EVO 2014 following the Injustice: Gods Among Us championships, Raiden will be making an appearance in Mortal Kombat X.

IGN spoke with Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon about Raiden's return, revealing that he will have three different variations: Displacer, Storm Lord, and the tentatively titled Thunder God Raiden. Displacer leverages his teleportation ability. Storm Lord allows him to throw out lightning bombs that will create a tether of electricity between them. Finally, Thunder God Raiden focuses on delivering big damage attacks.

You can check out the trailer below, which was recorded directly from the EVO 2014 Twitch stream, so apologies for some of the strange audio.

Our Take
It's hardly a surprise to see Raiden make a return for Mortal Kombat X, but it's nice to see him confirmed.
